Ornamental ID - Asteraceae
« on: July 11, 2009, 17:05:27 PM »

Not a rare outdoor ornamental species and perhaps someone is familiar with it in this forum before I take the hasle to research it.

It was found in some hotel at Marfa.

To be precise and if it matters I found these at Riviera Hotel, Marfa. So what is the species?

Then it must be a plant of the "north"  Grin  Grin

No idea. Ornamentals in gardening really means "potentially any plant out of all the plants in the world" so to know each and every obscure species in cultivation is truly a monumental task. To make things worse, many of the flowering annuals and perennials are hybrids that simply do not exist in that form in nature. I doubt this is the case with this plant, of which I have a single specimen (courtesy Ramla  Grin) but you will find that many gardeners (even professionals) do not know the Latin names of most plants that they grow, or at most they know only the genus, and often, this may be completely incorrect - the mistaken Latin becomes a "common" appellation.

Thanks for your reply - it will remain a mystery then !!  Smiley . I am learning that what you said is true in the world of ornamental plants. Too much messing with genes by man to get that super miss-universe plant for good market!
